Let there be light - and thanks to UKIP there was !

AT least one corner of Doddington is sparkling with Christmas lights thanks to the Fenland branch of UKIP.

When members found out the village would not be having lights this year due to the christmas scourge's at the local council it decided to do something about it.

The branch paid for the purchase and installation of lights all over the Three Tuns public house and gardens. On Friday there were celebrations for the big switch-on.

Len Baynes of UKIP explained that for a number of years the pub has been the unofficial headquarters for UKIP in the Fens.

He said: "We felt that all the support we get from Brian and Jenny Adams and the clientele at the pub deserves some recognition. A fully qualified electrician has been on hand to oversee the installation and it was great to see so many people at the switch-on.
